Transitioning My Makeup From Summer to Autumn - My Beauty Staples

With autumn well and truly upon us, it's time to start transitioning your makeup away from the pretty pinks and peaches of summer, opting for darker berry tones in return. I definitely enjoy autumn as it's the perfect time for being more experimental with your makeup and opting for something bolder if you wish. In this blog post, I'll be talking you through the changes that I've made to my makeup routine in time for autumn, as well as sharing some of my favourite products for this time of year!

The start of the cooler weather means that your skin can become dry and dehydrated, so I make sure to implement a hydrating moisturiser into my everyday skincare routine, such as the Origins Ginzing Moisturiser. This helps to restore some of the moisture that my skin lacks, as well minimising the amount that my foundation clings to patches of dry skin. Since my daily spot cream is also quite drying to the skin, this is definitely an essential part of my routine.

It wouldn't be autumn if everyone didn't start getting colds, which can often cause skin discolouration, especially around the nose. Considering this, and the fact that I always have spots and dark under-eye circles from a lack of sleep, a high-coverage concealer is an absolute essential. Lately, I've been loving the Essence Camouflage Full Coverage Concealer, which seamlessly hides any imperfections without being too heavy. It also adds a brightened effect under the eyes, which is ideal for looking more awake.

By the time that autumn has arrived, my summer tan has almost entirely faded and so it's necessary to add a bronzed glow back into my complexion. Especially with the dark, autumnal lip colours washing me out, applying some bronzer is a must-have, focusing it on the high points of the face where the sun would naturally hit. I definitely go through bronzers too quick and hit pan extremely fast, but my favourites are probably the Rimmel Kate Moss Sculpting Palette or the bronzer from the Tanya Burr Cosmetics Beautifully Defined Palette, and you can clearly see that I love them from the little product left in them!

In summer, I quite often have bare lids and just opt for some mascara for a fresh, bright-eyed look, but now is the perfect time for playing around with eyeshadows and embracing the more autumnal shades. Whether it's terracottas, plums or anything in between, autumn lends itself perfectly to a variety of eyeshadow looks, especially in palettes like the Primark Master Eye Palette which is a necessity for this season and there's a variety of possible looks you can create using it.

To finish off any autumnal look, it's a necessity to wear a darker, berry lip to tie everything together. Although I do love a nudish pink all year round, now is the time to explore some darker options that are perfect for the season. The Rimmel 'The Only One' Lipsticks are great semi-matte, long-wearing options for a statement look, whereas the Soap and Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Crayons are better for a more subtle wash of colour, possibly if you're new to berry lips and want to start off with a sheer look that is easier to wear.

I hope that you enjoyed this blog post as I really enjoyed writing it, and perhaps if you'd like a makeup look surrounding these products or for an in-depth review of any of them then make sure to let me know. Thank you very much for reading and I'll see you next week with another new blog post!
